My oasis

Helen, Peckham, South London
Growing up and living in the countryside for much of her life, Helen is used to big wide open spaces and loves being outside. She enjoys coming to the Centre for Wildlife Gardening, as it’s like leaving the city. She feels calm, like she can breathe again and connected to the changing seasons.
